    Dress #1, look no further. It is gorgeous.

    For my personal taste I really like the last dress you posted where you thought your chest looked bare, but #1 looks truly fabulous on you

    I absolutely love 1 on you. The shape, the elegance. Also adore the sleeve things 😀

    I agree, dress number one is stunning! Your waist looks teeny tiny and you look taller than 5’2!

    So many choices! Oh yeah, I totally agree that straps are your thing, but I really like the straight neckline of #1 on you as well. I think square and scoop necklines, with straps, and with the neckline at the same depth it is in that dress, will really make your boobs as big as they can be.

    I also think you should look at one-shoulder dresses, if you don’t have any objections to that style. (Not the ones that look like they have one strap missing, but the ones that sweep across your chest in a diagonal line and have a neckline that is quite high up. I think they’d be good for your boobs too.)

    Overall I think I like #2 the best. The halterneck gives you instant boobs, and the whole look says “Hey, I got curves people!”. 

    I liked #1 a lot at first – the neckline and shape are winners – but I think it might make you look a little short. Also, I’m assuming it’s strapless without the bolero, and I think you’d do better with one with attached straps, in case you want to take the bolero off.

    But I also like the high neckline and a-line skirt of #5. I’m thinking they would be good options for making you look taller and hiding your hips/behind, if that’s what you want.

    Oh, and the silhouette – a-lines are your thing, I think. Just about all the ones you said you liked are a-line in some form. They will minimise your rear end, give you the fullness of skirt without looking poofy, and also help to make you look tall. So, that.

    Hi number 1 looks stunning on you it highlights the areas you wanted it to beautifully, it highlights your tiny waist and gives you a bust and the skirt is so light looking and beautifully cut that I think it gives you height.  I also think number 5 looks amazing on you, it is different and elegant and once fitted to you it would also highlight the same areas as number 1and it too gives you height, I dont think you could go wrong with either Smile

    I think #2 is the best. Many of the last few just look either too ‘old’ or just are not very flattering,IMO.

    OMG number one is fab fab fabulous on you!!! I’m  not one for a big skirt, but it looks amazing! With your figure I would normally suggest trumpet (my fav) but there is something about number one that just makes it look magical! I love how it’s very fitted on the bodice, it looks perfect.

     I would skip the bolero – it’s too big – and In My Humble Opinion they are very matronly. Do you have any pix of number 1 without the bolero??

    The first one is really the only one I like.  If you aren’t opposed to the bolero you should try on pronovias pergola, I think it would be great on you.

    @Demi-chan:  I’m sure Jasmine’s could d0 that, though they mostly do replicas rather than  original designs.

    May I ask what your budget is? Because I don’t think it’s out of the question that you’ll be able to find what you like in a traditional shop.

    P.S. You’re really good at drawing, you know!
